…John the Baptists–the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal

  • Barb Bathon

    Father,Our family had the opportunity to spend the fourth of July with the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal and the Sisters of Life at a Festival in Connecticut. Having met one or two at a time a few times in my life, seeing several dozen together in Adoration, celebrating mass, juggling and singing, and sharing a meal with them, gave me an even greater appreciation for their order. Both the Sisters of Life and the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal are souls that are vocational juggernauts. So on fire with their faith and vocation, that one can only be caught up in the wave of their vocation! It was one of the greatest days our family spent together. This was considering we spent the early morning at Ground Zero and Time Square, then the rest of the day in Connecticut. Even our teenager children said the Festival was the best part of their summer!!
